Cards for friends

My teacher Ann Lindsay said a good thing about being an artist is you always have an excuse to buy yourself flowers. Here I've painted a quick study of roses in ink and wash.
Next up is a postcard showing the salt tower on the River Iln in Passau, Germany.

Baby quilt

Today I gave away my first baby quilt of the year.  Here's a picture.
All told, I've made around 30 baby quilts.  Recently one of my quilts was featured in LACMA's.  Click the link to learn more.

Central Europe gifts

Today I sketched souvenirs that I brought back from Europe and will give away as gifts. The first is a rattle with bells that I bought for my niece at the Budapest Christmas market. I also drew a bookmark with Gustav Klimt's Austrian Secession poster. The last page shows three Slovakian ornaments from Bratislava.
